a very tight race in the must-win state of ohio. president obama is at 50% and mitt romney is at 46%. i'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they now say they could. although if you look at the internals you see what you've been seeing all along. president obama is up with women about 12 points, mitt romney up with men by 8 points. romney has made some in roads in suburban areas, but in our poll, the president is up with independent voters by about 5 points. what romney needs to keep doing, to get the momentum or to continue a momentum that he had after the first debate is to get those voters out in the suburban areas, married women in particular, that could make the difference for him in the state of ohio, which is so key. but as for overall momentum
. >> and obama at 50, not at 47%. >> and obama is at 50% in ohio, willie. >> one other note inside that "new york times" poll, conventional wisdom is obama would struggle with white working-class voters in ohio anyway, not in virginia. but in ohio he's even with romney among white voters who do not have a college degree. that's very important. >> and by the way, i think he's up, what, 30% in florida? >> 30. >> he's up 30 points, willie, in florida among white voters. but in ohio, he's dead even. >> dead even. florida and virginia. >> and virginia. >> 30 points. >> think about how much of the negative bain advertising took place this summer you still see it in the numbers, doesn't care about people like me. romney's numbers are still upside down. people say governor romney doesn't care about people like them. that is still the result of a summer of pummeling in ohio by the obama campaign and the democratic super pacs which worked ohio harder, knowing that the state could be a firewall, knowing that they could hold the electoral map and take ahold of ohio. they hit him harder there than anywhe anyw
were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. then out west to springfield, ohio. then he headed north to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here is a look at another romney campaign rock concert and victory rally outside cincinnati. romney was also in wisconsin this morning, portraying himself as the candidate of change? >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? and we bring real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney sure has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates at tonight's ohio victory rally. former secretary of state condoleezza rice, former labor secretary elaine chao, bobby jindal, tom ridge and also ohio senator rob portman. all five of these folks worked with the bush administration. in fact, mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled out the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an electio
. >> announcer: barack obama said he saved the auto industry but for who? ohio or china? under president obama g.m. cut 15,000 americans jobs. but they're planning to double the number of cars built in china which means 15,000 more jobs for china and now comes word that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in china. >> cenk: wait a minute! president obama saved all of those jobs in ohio and michigan and all across the country! they're turning the truth on its held. oh, jeep is not making -- they're make the jeeps in china. don't take my word for it. go to jeep. they said... let's set the record state. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. in other words romney is lying! now, they also started running an ad they used to run earlier against obama which is not true. they didn't announce it to the media because they didn't want to have everybody talk about here they go again with their lies. >> announcer: if you want to know president obama's second term agenda, look at
not that the ohio people aren't working hard, too. they have a very impressive obama operation, but the republican operation compared to four years ago, it's not a comparison. much better. we're going to have an interesting day come tuesday. >> it's going to be exciting for the whole country. >>> last minute moves. a strategy that's either desperate or brilliant, depending on who you ask. mitt romney is making an 11th hour push for pennsylvania. a jackpot with 20 electoral votes. pouring 6 million into the state on advertising. he's never led in a single poll there since he became a nominee. cnn has that in the obama category, but the president's lead has been shrinking and polls show president obama had been up as much 11 and 1 points over the summer and fall, but in a quinnipiac poll, he was only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it m
in the last election, but do you think that? >> president obama has had a small but steady lead in ohio. we think the romney campaign is looking at a saturation point. there's not much more than you can do except get out the vote. with money, the with the candidate's time more importantly, i think speaks to change the strategy because the current strategy isn't working. they're looking for alternate paths to 270. states where it looked like romney was pulling ahead in. florida, virginia, colorado. the fact the romney campaign is running an ad in florida trying to tie the president to castro and chavez speaks to insecurity on his part about whether the cuban population will come out to vote. i think this is evidence of a scramble to hit 270. >> and let's look at the map. i promised i would. paul and ryan. if romney could pull off a win in pennsylvania, this does make the path to 270 completely different. so, he wouldn't even need ohio. we have 237 for obama, 206 for romney. 95 up for grabs, so if romney gets pennsylvania, we call it a snatch because it's very difficult to do, he's in the lea

obama maintaining a lead in swing states including florida, virginia and in ohio obama leads romney 50 to 45% among likely voters. he also has a huge advantage when it comes to early voters. among those who have already cast their ballots in the state, 60% of ohioans favor the president while only 34% voted for romney. meanwhile, team romney is pumping cash into states not expected to be competitive at this stage. the governor's campaign says it is seeing a resurgence in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota. the obama campaign is pouring cold water on that very theory saying it shows signs of a struggling romney campaign. quote, romney campaign desperate. putting up ads in pennsylvania and minnesota, prove he's struggling to find a new path to 270. that prompted the romney campaign to respond with a tweet of its own, spokesman ryan williams, quote, nervous. obama campaign says minnesota and pennsylvania aren't battlegrounds but running more than 1.1 million in ads there. the baaing and forth on twitter, ben. who to believe. i'll say this. minnesota is a blue state that bill clinton di
to put up that final campaign calendar, if we can, and have you take a look. obama's in ohio four times in five days he's in wisconsin three times, colorado twice, romney's in virginia, wisconsin, ohio, colorado and new hampshire. what can you read, if anything, into these schedules? who's worried about which states? or who's, you know, ignoring other states? what do you make of it? >> well, you know, i did notice that president obama is only going down to florida one time, i believe. >> right. >> so, you know, that's striking. you know, the polling has, i think, generally been slightly pro-romney. so, you know, i don't get the sense that they really think that florida is the best place to be spending their time. they might be writing it off. you know, i think it's really interesting to see wisconsin be such a frequent destination. i believe that romney had not gone to wisconsin for a couple, few months until he went last week or a few days ago. he's going back again. the emphasis on wisconsin right now is interesting. and i think it speaks to the idea that although romney is definitely
, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n
. i'm optimistic. politically, we have a great ground game in ohio. i have 14 or 15 obama offices in my congressional district. there are people knocking on doors right now, making phones. we have a huge weekend ahead of us for getting out the vote. a mobilized and energized base. we have had bill clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 ohio residents, we still have that line open to you -- 202- 585-3883. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- frankly, that few of jobs shouldn't be getting anyone satisfied or excited. another comment from james ard -- the jobs numbers are irrelevant. obama has no hope of americans giving him another chance. your thoughts on those comments. guest: nobody is satisfied
ohio down to a one-point lead. if anything, obama has momentum. he was declared the winner of the final two debates. i'm not sure how the hurricane is playing for him, but his numbers ticked up. that's why the states that seem toss uppy seem like they are more firmly in the president's favor. >> let me ask you, and i didn't warn you i was going to ask you this, but you have been the subject of a lot of criticism in this last week in particular as if the polling model that you built at "the new york times" and the way you explain the polling is somehow biassed or wrong or evil. i feel like you are waging a one-man war against e pneumonia rossty in explaining how polling works. how has the week been? >> it's been a trip where you become a subject of conversation yourself and there's this celebrity level attached to it that's new for me e. but there are other websites that do the same thing that we do. they all show basically the same thing. there's no way to slice and dice the data in ohio or iowa or wisconsin right now and say that romney is winning there. in fact, the polls would have t
. in wisconsin president obama up by seven points. in new hampshire the president leading in six points. in ohio president obama leading in three points. in virginia president obama leading by one point. in florida president obama leading by two points. one state that's not a swing state this year but that president obama made into a swing state in 2008 is the great state of indiana. indiana flipped from red to blue in the presidential contest. president obama is not necessarily expected to pull off the same thing this year in indiana. but this year there's a really hot race in indiana in the senate. after a tea party primary cost senator richard lugar his senate job, the republican candidate in indiana ended up being the guy on the left side of your screen richard mourdock. he's up against joe donnelly. since he made his rape comment at a debate a few weeks ago, in very, very, very, very red state indiana, the republican candidate is now behind in that state senate race. he's losing the race by double digits. here's the interesting thing about that poll to. it's a poll in indiana, which almost
, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney. listen. >> at the time the republican congress, senate candidate by the name of mitt romney -- no -- voting is the best revenge. >> reporter: voting is best revenge. his campaign was asked about that. they said what he was talking about is the best way to battle back against the illusion and delusion that mitt romney is putting out there but he did give romney a gift to put an ad. what is the president really talking about here? what does he want people to vote for? giving romney to contrast himself with the president. listen. >> yesterday the president said something you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience, he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i would like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> we talk a lot about early voting here on the campaign trail and this election, it's particularly important in colorado where 50% of people have already cast their ballots. here is the way it's broken down.
more frayed. >>> four days to go, president obama arrives in ohio overnight and governor romney heads there as well as both camps brace for this morning's all-important jobs report and the impact of sandy looms large over election day. >>> and walk this way. new yorkers in need of a lift are about to get one on our plaza. the countdown has begun for aerosmith's first ever morning show concert today, friday, november 2nd, 2012. >>> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. this has been a hard week around here, but it's nice to have something to smile about this morning. aerosmith here on the plaza. >> a confession, i walked outside a second ago as they were rehearsing to see steve tyler behind a microphotograph and joe perry walking up and down the stage. this is just a destruction. the death toll from sandy has risen to more than 90 people. there's a lot of talk about the situation in new yor
drilling. and then bill clinton campaigning for president obama and how is it going to work? we'll have the numbers in ohio for you which are critical to the election. >> let's give the job to the man who has done the job so he can finish the job. >> cenk: yeah, 50/50. not so much. all right, later in the program you'll enjoy this. a he will elbow on the head. what for? awesome hypocrisy. stick around for the elbow of the day. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. >> cenk: as we told you sandy has made landfall ten minutes ago, longer than that, in new jersey. it has affected many of the areas around new jersey as well. that was a picture of new york that we are a looking at on 57th street where a crane is suspended over head and everyone is worried to death over that. that is a building that we've done a story about--that has a $90 million apartment in it. this storm is taken a little more serious, it's affecting the rich--wow. we'll talk about that later in the show. when asked about the possible implications of the election, this is what president obama said. >> obama: i'm not
right, let's write it down. new york times, gave hard for the obama team put him up 5 points in ohio and karl rove looked specifically at that poll. overpolling, oversampling of democrats skewing the overall result. that's a fact, not an opinion. >> stuart. i've been hearing about the skewed polls for ages and here is the bottom line, every pollster worth their salt and that's most pollster, are not going to skew numbers, nobody will believe them when the numbers don't prove to be accurate. when you look at the polls the way the people's lives depend on it you're not going to-- your credibility is on the line. stuart: the is new york poll, oversampling. >> and even rasmussen said democratic turnout is going to be higher than republican turnout. >> what the polls said. >> gave it a plus 2. and stuart is asking a fact-based questioning. have you looked at the sampling methodology. >> i have. >> and did you see it could be skewed toward more democrats. >> let me tell thank you, there are certain polls that screw more democrat and some screw republican because the automated and call peop
shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50 to 45. a tighter race in virginia. president obama at 49, mitt romney at 47, which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48 and mitt romney at 47. another statistical tie. tonight nate silver of the "new york times'" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 238 and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common ground. >> and the fight over who is the real friend of the auto industry continued today. >> the facts, the
the white house without winning ohio. governor romney will join ryan there. team obama pressing on in new hampshire. a state he won in 2008 and he may need to win again and biden in virginia. we'll have more on the obama campaign in a moment. we'll go to carl cameron. you are tramping with the romny campaign and an event thal go live this hour. for now changes in the schedule for the romney because of the super storm. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about
-- >> reporter: that effort is well advised because the obama campaign has 131 field offices in ohio. compared to only 39 for romney and they're leading a robust get out the vote effort. >> come on ride the bus with us. cast your vote today. >> reporter: now, ohio's 18 electoral votes may well pave the way to the white house, but because this race is so tight, few here believe they'll know who won them on election night. >> dean, if it's so important and if in fact the ground games are so important, what's the difference in the two ground games? >> reporter: well, charlie, it's not a scientific observation but what i see is that the obama campaign is far more interested in the early voting. and the romney campaign is still in the persuading phase of this election. they're going door to door trying to get people out to early vote, but really trying to persuade them to vote either early or on election day. >> all right, thank you, dean reynolds. >>> hurricane irene cost more than $4 billion in losses when it ripped through the east coast and economists believe hurricane s
, the gallup poll 41 and all for romney, and nobody trusts president obama on the economy. >> ohio and-- >> and investors don't trust him, because-- investors don't trust him he's already told businesses the tax rates are going to go up, especially on small businesses and secondly, obamacare, the single largest mandated labor cost hike in american history is about to clobber. >> unemployment is the best in years and-- >> the unemployment is the best it's been in years. >> down to 7.8%. >> that doesn't mean more people are working. >> and the numbers have shown the economy is getting better. >> the american people are more than the people you live with and hang out in your house. 7.8% is not real when it's 14.7%. and americans are working two and three jobs. americans are still looking for some kind of recovery and they're not with barack obama to get that recovery. >> the jobs that barack obama put forward and the republicans want to get him out of office. if the republicans sit down with the president in a bipartisan way and work on a jobs bill. >> federal government spending does not
a rally for president obama in youngstown, ohio. of course, the president will not be there. he is in washington. joe biden will be there. live coverage starting at 3:30 p.m. eastern. the president's statement expected at 12:45 eastern. right now, a discussion on the cost of campaign 2012 from this morning's washington journal. that is the last comprehensive report we would get from the campaign, party committees, other groups. when they spend money, especially these outside organizations, they have to report every 24 hours but they have spent. the big picture is pretty well defined. host: the romney and obama campaigns are expected to raise $1 billion each. what does this say about the election? guest: is very hours but they have competitive and close. people are engaged and interested. the president's campaign in 2008 also got to about $1 billion, but altogether with the parties donations. for both of them to be there is extraordinary. host: walk us through what you're looking at in terms of money raised. there are other groups attracting wealthy. >> the campaigns are fairly d
. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with the communities depending on autos. the policies that will be good for the auto industry, for the st
contested. so there is a potential firewall for president obama if you look at ohio and wisconsin and nevada and iowa but it's only potential because all those states are very close. so we're seeing a pretty fears republican effort as well to flip wisconsin. that would have a dramatic impact on the electoral mass if they can take a state and flip it. and we're seeing a flurry of candidate visits next week. president obama will be here tuesday and paul ryan will be here wednesday. how much of the ect of this election comes from the ripple effect of the recall of governor walker? guest: i think there's been an interesting debate about what the recall told us about the presidential election. you can overstate the implications in some ways. a recall is a pretty extraordinary event and it was pretty clear in the recall fight that some voters were voting against the recall process. they didn't think it was appropriate. so you actually had in the exit poll in the recall in june. you had between 15 and 20% of the people that voted for republican scott walker in the recall fight said they favored pre
in ohio today. >> who will do more for the auto industry not barack obama. fact checkers confirm that his attacks on mitt romney are false. mitt romney plans to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee iacca mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt romney, and i approve this mention. >> cenk: of course you did you're a goddamn liar, and you approve nonsense like that all the time. how many jeeps are produced in china--none. how muchhow many in the u.s.? half a million. and lee iaccoa supporting you a filthy rich guy supporting romney, i didn't see that coming. how about jeep itself. quote, let's set the record straight: jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. if that's not clear enough, we'll bring in congressman steve cohen from tennessee. he has been following this race, as we all have. i know sometimes there is a coloring of the lines and you don't always get the exact truth in the different sides of the election but this seems to be record breaking to me. am i seeing that wrong or are they taking more chance
